    Rooms 55 /Architecture Jorge Guimarães /Interior Design Vera Iachia & Teresa Barão /The Original Francisco Moser

    In typical Algarve style, Vila Monte, situated in Moncarapacho in Portugal’s Olhão municipality, uses whitewashed surfaces and natural wood to create bright, airy atmospheres. The property sprawls over nine hectares, encompassing orange and olive groves, gardens and ponds, two swimming pools, a tennis court, and four buildings that house its 55 rooms as well as a Suites Collection that includes private terraces or gardens and a personalized butler service. The interiors were designed by Vera Iachia—who has worked with Andy Warhol and Jacques Grange—and the hotel’s event and activity offerings include fishing in the Ria Formosa, boat tours, seafood tasting, desert island sunbathing, and trips to the Olhão market with the chef of the hotel’s À Terra restaurant. During the summer months, guests can watch movies in the great outdoors and enjoy one of the area’s jogging trails.

    The Desert Island

    A speck appears on the horizon, then grows to reveal a large bank of powdery sand rising from the waters of Barra Nova. You disembark and walk barefoot over soft sands, hearing only the tide, the wind, and the far-off song of ocean birds flying over the Atlantic…

    Made by Originals

    Francisco Moser

    It could be said that Francisco Moser is “book smart” in two different ways. There’s the bookwork he did while earning undergraduate degrees in hospitality—including those from the Porto School of Hospitality and Tourism and the Estoril Higher Institute for Tourism—as well as for his postgraduate degrees in Accounting and Finance at the Catholic University of Portugal, another in Digital Marketing, and a master’s degree in marketing. But Moser is also a student of the industry he loves, counting books by the great New York City restaurateur Danny Meyer and by Isadore Sharp, the founder of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, among his favorites. “I like to read books by and about people who look at the hospitality industry in a different way,” he says. Like all great thinkers, Moser is constantly asking questions—How to be different? How to look to the future? How to provide guests with what they are looking for?—and then he answers those questions with his own hotels.
